I only go for Gold wrote:
It was the same approach Muir adopted in the 1500m final at last summer's Olympic Games in Rio. The Scot pushed the pace with two laps to go but then faded to seventh.
By contrast, the USA's Jenny Simpson stuck with the pack and coasted down the home straight to take bronze. But Muir has no regrets.
She says: 'I would approach it the same way, definitely, because I would rather lose a medal than come third and think, 'I could have won that race'.
'I could have held back and gone for bronze but, if I did, gold would definitely have gone. So, yes, I did everything I could to win the race. That's what I do.'http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/othersports/article-4634020/Laura-Muir-ve-never-seen-before.html
The two are the best clean 1500m runners in the world at the moment. The Africans are potentially quicker, but they're so drugged up, you can't believe any of them.
Respect to both Muir and Simpson. Muir is still on the 'up' and quite a bit younger than Simpson - she can still run faster over the next few years. Simpson has the medals though and a WC gold, and you can't deny that. Atm Simpson > Muir (though Simpson is quite a bit older), but Muir can be truly great IF she keeps going. She may flame out; who knows? But it is exciting and inspiring to watch her race.
Anyway, if the hidden-testicle men move up from the 800m, they are all toast.
